Annual alcohol index distribution in Sweden 2010-2019, by attitude groups

This statistic shows the distribution of the annual alcohol index in Sweden from 2010 to 2019, by attitude groups. The index is based on annually conducted surveys. In 2019, the share of respondents with permissive attitude (index value 50 and less) towards alcohol was 30 percent. The largest share was represented by respondents with a moderate attitude, which means an index of 51 to 75. An index of 0 would mean that alcohol consumption meets with a big refusal, while an index of 100 would mean the total acceptance by the society.
Over the period under consideration, the overall index slightly increased and shows a slightly growing permissiveness towards alcohol.

Supplementary notes

The surveys were conducted in the same period of each year; the concrete period was not given by the source.

*The number of respondents was n=2,000 in all years except 2018 and 2019.

The source adds the following information: "The higher the index, the more restrained is the attitude. Respondents had to decide whether or not agreeing to nine statements. By answering 'completely wrong', the highest index value is generated, while the answer 'completely correct' gives the lowest index value, which is the most permissive attitude to alcohol."

The statements used to calculate the index were as follows:
1. Drinking occasionally so that you feel affected.
2. Getting occasionally drunk at private parties.
3. Getting occasionally drunk at company parties.
4. Selling beer and wine to the audience at major sports events.
5. Giving alcohol as a gift to someone you do not know so well.
6. Getting drunk when eating dinner at a restaurant.
7. Drinking so much that you feel bad the next day.
8. Getting drunk when children are with you.
9. Drinking so much that it's afterwards hard to remember how much it actually was.
